Mononucleosis, sometimes known as kissing disease, is a viral infection. It often affects young people, can be transmitted from kissing (via saliva), and presents itself as a sore throat, fever, and swelling of the lymph nodes.
Mononucleosis, also known as “kissing disease” is caused by the Epstein-Barr virus (EBV). It affects mostly children and youth and is transmitted via contact with saliva, e.g. when kissing.
Small children often show few symptoms, whereas youth and young adults show typical signs of fever, sore throat, and swollen lymph nodes. The spleen swell drastically due to the infection and in rare cases it can even rupture and lead to internal bleeding. Patients should absolutely avoid playing sports, especially contact sports, for this reason.
There is no treatment for mononucleosis, although painkillers and anti-inflammatory medication can alleviate symptoms. Resting and preventing injury to the spleen are important factors in recovery.
